OOPSLA is an annual conference covering topics related to object-oriented programming systems, languages and applications. Like other conferences, OOPSLA offers various tracks and many simultaneous sessions, and thus has a different meaning to different people. It is an academic conference, and draws doctoral students who present peer-reviewed papers. It also draws a number of non-academic attendees, many of whom present experience reports and conduct panels, workshops and tutorials.
Call for Papers
OOPSLA 2011 solicits research papers that present new research, report novel technical results, advance the state of the art, or discuss experience or experimentation. The scope of OOPSLA includes all aspects of programming languages and software engineering, broadly construed.
Papers may address any aspect of software development, including requirements, modeling, prototyping, design, implementation, generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, project cancellation, maintenance, reuse, regeneration, replacement, and retirement of software systems. Papers on tools (such as new programming languages, dynamic or static program analyses, compilers, and garbage collectors) or techniques (such as new programming methodologies, type systems, design processes, code organization approaches, and management techniques) designed to reduce the time, effort, and/or cost of software systems are particularly welcome.

OOPSLA particularly encourages the submission of papers that diverge from the dominant trajectory of the field or challenge the existing value system. The program committee will consider the following criteria when evaluating submitted papers:
- Novelty: The paper presents new ideas and/or results and places these ideas and results appropriately within the context established by previous research in the field.
- Interest: The results in the paper are interesting, intriguing, or provocative. The paper challenges or changes informed opinion about what is possible, true, or likely.
- Evidence: The paper presents evidence supporting its claims. Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, case studies, and anecdotes.
- Clarity: The paper presents its claims and results clearly.
